Business and Events Manager

Are you a highly organised administrator with experience in developing opportunities for increasing income? Do you have experience of booking, facilitating and supporting events? Do you have a keen interest in sport and physical activity?

Based in the Sport & Physical Activity main office at The Edge, you and your team will provide a central point of contact for customers for all facility sales enquiries and bookings for campus facilities. 

You will maintain records to enable ongoing appraisal of efficiency and effectiveness of the facility functions. You will liaise with booking contacts about non-availability, cancellations, key access, refreshments etc, and coordinate and oversee the management and delivery of one-off events across the facilities. You will pro-actively seek new income generating business for Sport and Physical Activity.

Typical working hours are 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, but there will be some flexibility required to enable you to undertake your duties, specifically to support events held on evenings and weekends, bank holidays and University closed days.
